A Taiwanese businessman has bought “Giu Bien” (Sea Keeping) of Vietnamese painter Uyen Huy which was displayed at a picture gallery in Ho Chi Minh City from September 19-30.
The painting, worth VND120 million, features the image of the late President Ho Chi Minh and Vietnamese naval force who are safeguarding the country's sea and island.
Giu Bien was created to oppose China's illegal positioning of Haiyang Shiyou 981 oil rig in Vietnamese waters.Previously, an American art historian and photographer Joan Lebold Cohen has also purchased a painting by Vietnamese artist Nguyen Giang Anh to express her support to Vietnam's sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) archipelago in the East Sea.
